What a lovely idea to add an otherworldly feel to your Halloween decorations.

After seeing Pixar’s “Brave,” Merida zoomed to the top of my girl’s list as the coolest Disney Princess EVER!!! This means “Brave-themed” birthday parties complete with Celtic-themed trimmings. Most importantly they want lots and lots of Will-o’-The-Wisps (or “Wisps” as they are called in the movie).
According to legend…with a little help for Wikipedia…the Will-O’-The-Wisp is a ghost-like light seen by travelers in marsh or bog areas that can resemble a flickering candle or lamplight. And they are a booger-bear to hunt, so let’s waste no time in catching a few.
What You Need:
Glass or clear plastic containers of various types (jars, craft ornaments, bottles) large enough to contain your creature
Grass; real or artificial (like the type in silk in floral arrangements) to help keep the creature comfy.
Vellum or tracing paper
Clear acetate paper
Sharpie markers (if you are free handing) or printed images of wisps
